The Welcome Wagon – “But For You Who Fear My Name”
I can take absolutely, 100%-ly, without-a-doubtly…ZERO CREDIT for this one. This was one of those little gems that was sent my way. Like a box full of dark chocolate covered caramels. I was grateful.
One of the great little bonds between me and my best friend Taido is music. If you know us, that last sentence was painfully redundant. But what is always new and always near is our passion for finding new good music. Music that will sustain and grow and dwell in us.
A couple of years ago, because Taido knows me well, he sent me along this song. He told me it was very Sufjan and very good. As always, I trusted. And as, nearly always, he was right.
Because I love the music itself. The sounds. The instruments. The melody.
Because I love the recording. The filled-full room. The live spontaneous feel. The rawness.
Because I love the togetherness. The clapping hands. The community. The voices rising together.
Because I love the words. “But for you who fear my name / The Son of Righteousness will rise / With healing in His wings.”
Because I love the repetition. Because I love it beginning to rise in me. Because I love finding songs that point me to what I really love. To Whom I really love.
